We all know that music holds the soul of the mankind. It is such a form of art that it immediately catches the love and attention of the listener. This amazingly carved wooden panel displays the same musical happiness, as the five heavenly apsaras play different instruments on the same rhythm.
These apsaras are dressed in charming attires of ankle length dhoti, fitted blouse and stylishly flowing stoles with heavy hairs tied in high ponytails; they stand in Bharatnatyam posture with the ghunghroos that ring to the beats of their leg movements. Veena, trumpet, dhapli, dholak and manjeera are some of the popular instruments that light the Indian culture with the soulful music that emerges out from them.
Framed in anciently carved perfect borders and the ethnic self textured background, this apsara panel highlights the variety, beauty, purity and charmness of the culture of India as music and dance hold the hearts of the people of India. This sculpture encapsulates India’s heavenly folk tradition in a beauteous rectangular frame.
